First Doc McStuffins, Now Disney Adds Openly Gay Tween to Hit Series 'Andi Mack'


Earlier this year, Disney stirred up quite the controversy when it featured its first gay character in the live-action film version of "Beauty and the Beast."

Then the so-called family entertainment company decided to add a two-moms lesbian episode of its children's show "Doc McStuffins."

Now, Disney's cable network is featuring a storyline about a gay teenage boy on the hit series "Andi Mack," according to the Washington Post

The series, which follows the life of 13-year-old Andi, will include a story about her friend Cyrus coming out as openly gay during the show's Season 2 premiere.

The Disney Channel says it wants the gay character to send a message about inclusion. 

"'Andi Mack' is a story about 'tweens' figuring out who they are," the network said in a statement earlier this week. "Everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it's appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity."

Disney also made headlines earlier this year when it aired a cartoon showing gay men kissing. 

Franklin Graham called on parents to boycott Disney's "LGBT agenda."

"They're trying to push the LGBT agenda into the hearts and minds of your children—watch out! Disney has the right to make their cartoons, it's a free country. But as Christians, we also have the right not to support their company. I hope Christians everywhere will say no to Disney," he said in a Facebook post.
